Yeah that's what I've been doing for like ever since I think August or whenever this windows 10 shit started. At first it was all passive and friendly like Yuno when she's not crazy...

But then like for the past two weeks, I'd come back to my PC to find that it's AUTOMATICALLY DOWNLOADING IT, and the popups get bigger and more aggressive.

THEN like the past few days, it started automatically installing (I was able to stop it at the download phase the first two times), and today, I was afk for too long and it already finished downloading and SAID SOMETHING LIKE: "YOU HAVE TO INSTALL IT WITHIN 4 DAYS. SET A DATE. YOU CANNOT CHANGE THIS DATE." <-- full on psycho Yuno.

And I've made sure to set my Windows Update settings to "Check for updates but don't ever install them". <-- I've had that setting for years, and FOR THE NORMAL UPDATES they never install without me manually updating.

But ofc, Windows 10 is like some kind of mandate by Microsoft to control all our computers because they apparently need more revenue so Bill Gates can buy up Japan and take over anime I think. I think Windows 10 comes with Ads (AIDs?) and also it probably has some kind of NSA/Google/extraterrestrial-illuminati-alien contract where they record your non-internet activity and send it whenever ur online -- as people have already posted here about "privacy concerns."

No, I don't need ads ON MY OWN FUCKING OS. No I don't want to install Windows 10. No you shouldn't be able to force me to upgrade TO A WHOLE NEW OS.

I'm on 7 because 8 is just imho turning your PC into a large phone. They don't even have programs anymore. They're all "apps" and it's just really stupidly hard to navigate through the start menu.

I've had win 10 on one of my laptops for a couple months now. had a few issues with video streaming, but not too much.
just yesterday turned it on, and it does a UN-notified update which kills my taskbar, nothing works on it anymore (no start menu/ pins dont work) everything shows but nothing.
task manager shows 98% cpu usage but all tasks show 0% used. apparently it has 0 out of 3 gigs of ram. and network will not connect.
I tried restoring a backup from a month ago but as soon as its turned back on it installs those updates again.

So i am going to officially upgrade back to Win 7 Ultimate from Win 10 OEM

sent from my Kubuntu Laptop

i upgraded and now I've switched back. (my laptop and my desktop.)


I will wait till it is more developed before returning, I just don't like it, I find it to be bulky. I am sticking with windows 7 for now.

I was extremely hard to get most of them working again.

Still sticking to 7. Hell, XP is even better still. 8 and higher is mobile friendly, but I'll pass on using them for desktops.


This is your field of expertise, so I'll ask why. I have my own non-expert opinion, but seeking an expert one never hurt anyone.

Why 7 is better or why are the others more mobile friendly?
